I wanna ask you do you ever sit and wonder?
It's so strange that we could be together for
So long and never know never care

What goes on in the other one's head
Things I felt but I never said
You said things that I never said so
I'll say something that I should have said long ago

You don't know me, you don't know me at all
You don't know me, you don't know me at all

You could have just propped me up on the table like a mannequin
Or a cardboard stand up and paint me
Any face that you wanted me to be seen with

Damned by the existential moment where
We saw the couple in the coma
And it was we who were the clich
But we carried on anyway

So sure I can just close my eyes
Yeah sure, trace and memorize
But can you go back once you know

You don't know me, you don't know me at all
You don't know me, you don't know me at all
You don't know me, you don't know me at all
You don't know me, you don't know me

If I'm the person that you think I am
Clueless chump you seem to think I am
So easily led astray

An errant dog who occasionally escapes
And needs a shorter leash then
Why the fuck would you want me back?
Maybe it's because

You don't know me at all
You don't know me, you don't know me

So what I'm trying to say is
What I'm trying to tell you is
Not gonna come out like I wanna say it
'Cause I know you'll only change it, say it

You don't know me, you don't know me at all
You don't know me, you don't know me at all
You don't know me, you don't know me at all
You don't know me, you don't know me at all
What?
